Gimbals: DJI Osmo Mobile 2
DJI Osmo Mobile 2. This is a solid choice for a gimbal. DJI has one of the better apps for filming too. This will also integrate with the Filmic Pro filming app.
Gimbals: Ulanzi Counterweight
Ulanzi gimbal counterweight to balance out large add-on lenses when using gimbals. (I’ve found with some set-ups you need two sets of these to get enough weight to balance the device).
